Stanley Godlesky


You never stop learning.

It is impossible to encapsulate a life lived with such meaning and purpose.  Stan's eighty-nine years saw him play many roles - loving husband, father, and grandfather - making memories of costumes and laughter, and devoting himself fully to any task at hand.

He believed in serving his country and his community.  A proud Coast Guard veteran of  WWII, Stan rose to every challenge.   He was a New Jersey State Trooper for thirty-one years, achieving the rank of lieutenant, and continued to serve in law enforcement on the local and state levels after retirement.

Stan was dedicated to his faith and thoroughly committed to his family and friends. His absence leaves a great void, but it was his beautiful presence that will always be remembered and cherished by those fortunate enough to have known him.

To ensure your generosity and support are acknowledged - and to help protect you from future solicitations - the Godlesky Family has requested that memorial contributions be made through IN MEMORY OF to the following



New Jersey State Police Survivors of the Triangle

New Jersey State Police Survivors of the Triangle provides resources to assist in the rebuilding of the lives of surviving families of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty.  Having served proudly as a New Jersey State Police Trooper and Lieutenant for over 30 years, a memorial donation to the NJSP would be a lasting tribute to Stan's memory.
